    the movie as well and took it at face value. I have a great deal of context and understand what the government is supposed to be able to do legally and what they can not do. Millions of kids who watch that movie, if they catch the scene most likely walked away with the sense that the government can collect information if it will keep us safe. This is a theme that is becoming dominate whenever we are presented with a false choice between keeping us safe and catching the bad guys.
